Ur asking me???

Yes. Did you even try it yet? It loads IE, not the default web
browser, with the URL to the WU site. It's a shortcut that was put
somewhere in your Start menu when you installed Windows. I've
customized my Start menu so much that I don't know where that shortcut
was originally in the Start menu.
